This is an old TVC from 2007 for Levi’s 501 jeans. It’s set in Prague and made to look like Prague from the old Commie days, when it was still a beauty caught behind the iron curtain.
What struck me were the scenes from old Prague. Grey, dilapidated buildings, some in scaffolding, the ubiquitous red and white trams zipping through the cobble-stone romantic streets of this magical city. And Škodas and Trabants completing the picture. And who could forget Prague’s greatest treasure: her glorious ARCHITECTURE! A treasure trove of architectural styles of all ages! It helps too that all the footage is in black and white.
This is the very Prague of my childhood.
